Previous owner's name inside, bottom spine has small tear, edges have light staining. This book grew out of talks I have been giving at universities for women's civic and church groups for businesses and adult education centers. When i began such talks I had no idea of the depth of the relationship between our mental health problems and our repressed and distorted ideas of human sexuality. it is a constant revelation to me to learn how many of us, including those with much education in other areas know so little about our own sexual functioning. -AUTHOR Softcover 127 pages

Tight, unmarked copy. No DJ as issued.Most K9 trainers are beginning to understand the advantages of non-compulsive training methods for teaching aggression control. When Stephen Mackenzie started his career training police service dogs, trainers relied on pain to teach dogs what was expected of them, and motivation was limited to their love of biting on one hand and their desire to avoid painful consequences on the other. The idea that aggressive dogs could learn in non-compulsive ways was slow to take root but is now widely accepted.Mackenzie describes several different approaches for training dogs in aggression control and teaching them to release the decoy without using compulsion. He explains in detail the use of the muzzle, the self out, and various toys and games, so trainers can use the techniques they prefer. Advice for decoys on controlling the dog's excitement level and the use of equipment to help the trainer are also included.Hardcover 98 p.

A freewheeling rollick through the history and future of our species, All s Well. Where Thou Art Earth and Why blends philosophy, metaphysics and ethics into an original and lyrical meditation on refining our place in the universe.150 generations out of the caves, we think we know our place in the vastness of the cosmos. Only 100 years ago we hardly knew that our Sun is just another star. Today, we still believe we re the most intelligent beings to exist. Yet simple arithmetic suggests there are at least 10 trillion thoughtful species elsewhere. We re not alone in the universe, just lonely: when we sufficiently mature, others may be in touch.All s Well suggests that this maturation will be deeply rooted in our acknowledgement that­­­ at our core we are vessels of consciousness, astonishment and love. With this positive summary of the human condition, Lefebvre argues that the United States foundational ideals form the correct basis for a set of Universal Rights and Responsibilities, excepting that they neve ...

Tight, unmarked copy.In this compelling tour through the world of anomalous research, Richard Milton makes clear what the scientific establishment takes pains to deny: plenty of hard experimental evidence already exists for such things as cold fusion, paranormal phenomena, bioenergy, and the effectiveness of alternative medicine. Because these subjects and those who dare to investigate them are continually denied legitimacy by what can only be called the "paradigm police," the public is led to believe that all claims made about such topics are completely groundless. With humor and an eye for the telling detail, the author describes many instances when the defenders of scientific orthodoxy acted with unscientific rigidity in the face of the evidence. Faraday, Roentgen, Edison, and even the Wright Brothers were thought to be charlatans by their contemporaries. Taking the broad view of the way science is done, Milton discusses the forces at work in the marginalization of unorthodox research, and makes the reader ... Read more
